Actress Seyi Ariyo alleges masqueraders threatening her life

Published

on

Nollywood actress, Seyi Ariyo has published a video on the social media platform, Instagram claiming that masqueraders have been threatening her life since she released a controversial Yoruba movie a week ago.

In the video that she published on Instagram, the teary-eyed actress revealed that she had been getting life-threatening messages from these masqueraders because of a scene in her forthcoming movie, Asiri Pepe, which portrayed a woman having sex with a masquerade.

In the Yoruba culture, such an act is seen as taboo.

However, the sex scene leaked online, and ever since she has received over 200 threat messages, she said.

Vindicating herself, the actress wrote on Instagram;

“I would never look down on our heritage and rich culture.

“The movie Asiri Pepe was produced to enlighten people on religious realities beyond the altar and in fact, the impact of looking down on the African religion.
